Located in the beautiful and rugged hills north of Santa Barbara, California, Mike Carhartt grew up raising cattle and horses on the historic family ranch. In 1996, he and his wife Brooke planted a vineyard and produced their first wines in 1998. Today, with their son Chase, the Carhartts grow grapes and craft wines on that same patch of ground.
Carhartt specializes in small-production wines. We currently produce around 35 different wines, which are released periodically throughout the year. We make in total about 7000 cases which are sold exclusively through our tasting room, wine club, and website. The wine club receives quarterly shipments, some of which are small lots made only for the club. The “Carhartt Cabin” tasting room is located in Los Olivos, CA, and offers a unique tasting room experience for those who want to learn more about the winemaking process. Let us welcome you for a glass or taste of wine anytime!
